RHYTHMIC youths have been invited to attend a taiko drumming workshop next week as part of the July art2264 program.
Held at Morisset PCYC, the event will also feature computer game competitions, live entertainment and sports.
The drumming workshop will be held from 4pm.
"These Japanese drums are so big you have to play them standing up, with a big stick," event spokesperson Nikita Almond said.
"Needless to say the guys love these drums. It's going to be loud. Very, very loud."
At 5pm there will be a performance by the TLC (Toronto Learning Communities) band.
After the performance, youths are invited to try out instruments and have a jam session.
"There will also be visual arts, the PCYC mobile and free, yummy snacks," Nikita said.
"If you aren't into art, then you can have a game of basketball on the huge indoor courts."
The activities are for primary and secondary school aged children, but families are welcome to participate.
"This month will also mark the installation of the murals, which have been contributed to over months by talented local youths and their families," Nikita said.
"They are now complete and ready to hang on the walls of the Morisset PCYC with pride."
The event will be held on Friday, July 20, from 4pm until 7pm.
Entry is free but participants are asked to become members of the Morisset PCYC at a cost of $10 per child per year.
